Wah Nu and Tun Win Aung discuss the use of personal and political archival footage in their video artworks. They talk about the censorship that was rife prior to 2010, and how the situation has since changed. They also elucidate the ways in which their sculptural and video work Four Pieces (of White) references the role of General Bogyoke Aung San in Myanmar’s independence. Wah Nu also mentions her grandfather’s participation in the historic Long March that is highlighted in one of their videos. [May 2013]
